a great, day, everyone! >> thanks again! have a great day! >>> four more years! president obama kicks off his second term with a rallying cry for where he wants the country to go. some say calling it progressive is an understatement. but can the president get bills on climate change and immigration through the republican-controlled house? meanwhile, in the middle east, israelis go to the polls and prime minister benjamin netanyahu is expected to keep his job. but what course does he want to take and what does that mean for the u.s. relationship with israel? >>> and today marks the 40th anniversary of the supreme court's landmark ruling on abortion in the case of roe versus wade. this morning, new poll numbers show what a majority of the country thinks about this always controversial topic. good morning from washington. it's tuesday, january 22nd, 2013, and this is "the daily rundown." i'm chris cillizza in for the "he lost his voice" chuck todd. let's get right to the first reads of the morning. five years ago, candidate barack obama laid out his vision of the presidency, talking about le
ahead of this story, senator marco rubio write, "my hope is president obama will use his voice and influence to further this approach. however, if what he offers is a process for the undocumented that is more lenient, faster and unfair to those waiting to completely, it won't bode well for reform." striking a much friendlier tone on sunday, this is what senator mccain said of the president's effort. >> believe it or not i see a glimmer of bipartisan out there. >> we have president obama out there pushing a plan. does it help? hurt? >> i think it helps. i think it's important we all work to the on this. >> this will be the first time mccain has signed on to any major obama initiative, though mccain supported fiscal legislation, he opposed don't ask/don't tell and the new start treaty. no one is sure how speaker boehner proceeds, does he violate the so-called hastert rule again? by the way, as for what the president does tomorrow, don't expect specific legislation. there was some talk that they might do that. i'm told that the congressional hispanic caucus suggested to the white
-style push to get those stiff gun measures passed, that you just talked about. the obama administration has sort of taken this tactic in the past, during the payroll tax cut fight, during the student loan fight, really circumventing congress and trying to build a ground swell of support among the people, to pressure congress to get what it wants to get done passed. so in this case, that is the stiffer gun law. so you're going to see vice president biden out today, holding that roundtable, talking about gun legislation. he'll be joined by his cabinet secretaries as well as a democratic senator, tim kaine, to really try to talk to the people about why he thinks this for gun legislation is a good idea. but, of course, as you just mapped out, there is a lot of opposition to this, particularly in states like virginia. so they're hoping to get moderates on their side, so that when this really does go to a fight, they will have the votes in the end. senior administration officials tell me, privately, they think that there is a lot of support for universal background checks and for limiting high-ca
indifferent to her over the past four years as they focused their energies on president obama. that clearly ended yesterday. clinton began her testimony with a rare public expression of emotion, talking about the deaths of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans in benghazi. >> for me, this is not just a matter of policy. it's personal. i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters, and the wives left alone to raise their children. >> but through most of the day, she was forceful, even combative, when she felt she needed to be, jousting with republican critics, including wisconsin senator ron johnson. >> we were misled, that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans! was it because of a protest?! or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some americans?! what difference, at this point, does it make?!
them to justice. and i stood with president obama in the rose garden, as he spoke of an act of terror. it's also important to recall that in that same period, we were seeing violent attacks on our embassies in cairo, sanaa, tunis, khartoum, as well as large protests outside many other posts where thousands of our diplomats served. so i immediately ordered a review of our security posture around the world, with particular scrutiny for high-threat posts. i asked the department of defense to join interagency security assessment teams and to dispatch hundreds of additional marine security guards. i named the first deputy assistant secretary of state for high-threat posts, so missions in dangerous places get the attention they need. and we reached out to congress to help address physical vulnerabilities, including risk from fire, and to hire additional diplomatic security personnel. second, even as we took these steps, i hurried to appoint the accountability review board, led by ambassador pickering and admiral mullen, so we could more fully understand, from objective, independent examinat
